White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

SWFL Cuisine

During the winter months in southwest Florida, many residents are fortunate to entertain visitors from out-of-state. Whether family, friends or significant others, these occasions call for special meals, special events and, of course, special desserts! In keeping with that SWFL hospitality tradition, here is a special dessert that is perfect for entertaining! According to Cindy Ann from Hagerstown, Maryland;

This makes an excellent cheesecake, similar to one you would get in a restaurant. Great for special occasions! Garnish with white chocolate curls if desired.

Is Yoga for Men?

SWFL Health and Well-Being

Sivananda Hatha yoga is a traditional style yoga that was created by a man born in India. Swami Sivananda, who practiced gymnastics as a boy, also studied the Vedantas (sacred scriptures) and became a doctor.  Having cured a wandering monk who spiritually influenced him, he then sought his Guru in the 'Land of the Sages', in Rishikesh, India. Having created a Raja-based yoga style (physical and mental control), which includes Karma yoga (unselfish acts), Bhakti yoga (devotional practices), and Jnana (knowledge), he felt compelled to send his beloved disciple Vishnudevananda to the West to spread this teaching. It was in the 1960’s that Vishnu shared his Sri Guru’s yoga and also founded the first Yoga Teachers Training in North America!

Rudi Too Bad

SWFL News

You may have never heard the name Rudi Dekkers before. However, it is likely that we've yet to hear the last of him! For those unfamiliar with Mr. Dekkers, he is a Dutch National. He has spent a good portion of his life living here in the United States. He is intelligent, multi-lingual, and he is also an author and a pilot. Maybe it's safer to say he was a pilot, as his days flying anywhere are (with near certainty) all done. The problem with Rudi is that trouble just seems to follow him. Although, there are many who say that his trouble was pretty easy to predict.

Rudi Dekkers was a Cape Coral resident. Nowadays, he also has the distinction of being known as an international crime figure.

A Warm Welcome Back

Paradise Pondering

Recently, here in southwest Florida, we've been enjoying blasts of cooler air coming from the north. Sometimes we don't get any cool weather until after Christmas, but this year we were lucky! Its really like having the best of both worlds! We can go to bed one evening, leaving our windows open for the cool night air, and awaken to 80 plus degrees. Day and night cycles like these are what really attracts our seasonal residents and snowbirds. Southwest Florida's numerous attractions, from awesome, eco-tourism excursions to world-class sport fishing and fantastic golf and sandy beaches, really offer something for everyone's tastes.

Yoga for Children with Autism and Special Needs

SWFL Health and Well-Being

The language of YOGA is very straightforward. It can, in fact, be expressed without using words. Yoga is movement! While yoga has been practiced for centuries, it has grown in popularity in recent years thanks to its well-known beneficial aspects, as well as the relief yoga provides for many ailments. Practicing yoga has been proven to give children living with autism and spectrum disorders significant relief. More commonly, the practice of yoga has shown to reduce stress and anxiety, as well as increase balance and strength! Many of the poses and breathing practices associated with yoga give kids a sense of calm, strength, clarity, and, even, improved self-esteem! According to Inga Balciuniene, Owner and Instructor at Cape Coral's Yoga and Massage Studio;

 

"Practicing yoga improves a person's quality of life. Not surprisingly, yoga's therapeutic effects on autistic and special needs children can be life changing!"

Art Walk

SWFL Events, Insights and Observations

Southwest Floridians were able to enjoy cool, evening temperatures, take in fabulous art displays and enjoy an evening outdoors at the downtown Fort Myers Art Walk last Friday. Scheduled for the first Friday of each month, the turnout is almost always good. As Southwest Florida approaches our 2012-2013 tourist season, that monthly turnout will flourish!

If the lovely and fun time among friends doesn't keep you coming back, then the variety of exhibits, plays, gallery showings and even music will! 

While Art Walk is a fantastic social opportunity for local residents, some gallery owners wish it were more of a shopping event for them. Given the wealth of fantastic artwork, illustration and paintings that can be found within the downtown galleries, the few locals who are buying art from local artists and galleries are amassing a treasure trove of priceless, southwest Florida work. But, if you think that under priced, breath-taking artwork is the only worthwhile 'take-away' from Art Walk, you, clearly, have yet to attend!

Salon Pays Forward Pink Cause

SWFL News

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! That being the case, many charitable organizations are hard at work raising funds for both local and national initiatives. They're not only in search of a cure, but, also, working to provide ready resources for those women who might require assistance! One Cape Coral business woman can attest to the charity's worth in the southwest Florida arena. As both a breast cancer survivor and recipient of assistance from both Susan G. Komen and Lee Memorial Health System's Breast Cancer Services, Susan Murphy has decided to give something back! On the heels of their Second Annual Hair FX Studio Cut-A-Thon to raise money for the organizations, Ms. Murphy is pleased with the event's continued growth!

Be The Ball !

Cape Coral Business

 

Many of today's business owners feel overwhelmed. And it isn't, necessarily, because they have an abundance of work. It is, however, caused by the changing face of marketing in a world firmly entrenched in social media. Operating a computer and using it for business are a necessity in the modern business world. However, operating a PC and building a social media presence for a business are two entirely different things. While it is true doing one requires the other, if you struggle with basic computer operations, the concept of building a social media presence, most likely, seems light years away from being a conceivable reality! Since the sole purpose of a blog is to post interesting and relevant content about your product, it's not rocket science. If you know your product or service well, then you need to be able to talk about it! Put simply, a business owner needs to 'be their product'!
